Strategic Innovation Career Academy
In today's global, fast-paced economy, innovation isn't only about new technology and great ideas. To drive value creation and sustain a competitive advantage, business leaders need a broad understanding of how enterprises develop, market, and finance change.
Tippie's Strategic Innovation Academy emphasizes a cross-functional approach to business. Whether you choose the Academy's Strategic Management & Innovation track or the Supply Chain and Analytics option, you'll be immersed in dynamic, hands-on learning opportunities: shepherding an entirely new technology to market or working with a major corporate client to engineer process efficiency and earn your Six Sigma Greenbelt.
